dc.description.abstractThe present study is an attempt to clear up some of the misunderstanding and confusion surrounding the historical origin of patents and monopolies and the proper meaning of each term. In the first section of the work the terms which are used are defined so as to prevent any confusion over just what is being discussed. The second section serves to introduce the subject and explains why this is a topic which has relevance and importance today. The historical background of patents and monopolies are discussed in the third section. This investigation also covers the origin of the confusion between the use of the terms 'patent' and 'monopoly. Finally, contemporary thought on the subject is examined to determine if the effects of the historical beginnings of these institutions are properly taken cognizance of in the thinking of today.en_US
